Enabling debug logging

You can enable debug logging for several Edge components. When you enable debug logging, the component writes debug messages to its system.log file.

For example, if you enable debug logging for the Edge Router, the Router writes debug messages to:


Use the following API call to enable debug logging for a component:

curl -X POST "http://localhost:PORT/v1/logsessions?session=debug"

To disable debug logging:

curl -X DELETE "http://localhost:PORT/v1/logsessions/debug"

To view active debug logging sessions:

curl -X GET "http://localhost:PORT/v1/logsessions/debug"

Each Edge component that supports debug logging uses a different port number in the API call, as shown in the following table:

Component Port Log file
Management Server 8080 /opt/apigee/var/log/edge-management-server/logs/system.log
Router 8081 /opt/apigee/var/log/edge-router/logs/system.log
Message Processor 8082 /opt/apigee/var/log/edge-message-processor/logs/system.log
Qpid Server 8083 /opt/apigee/var/log/edge-qpid-server/logs/system.log
Postgres Server 8084 /opt/apigee/var/log/edge-postgres-server/logs/system.log

Enable debug logging for Apigee SSO

To enable debug logging for Apigee SSO:

  1. Edit the /opt/apigee/customer/application/sso.properties file (if the file does not exist, create it):
    vi /opt/apigee/customer/application/sso.properties
  2. Set the following property and save the file:
  3. Restart the Edge SSO service:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service apigee-sso restart
